BLACK HISTORY CELEBRATION 2023
The 2023 Black History Celebration included:
African cultural food
Black excellence recognition
African music and Dance
Networking and so much more!
The Black History Celebration is a family friendly event that welcomes people from all cultures to celebrate and learn more of the Black and African community culture and traditions. In this spirit our event shares different delicacies from the continent of Africa, Music, Dance, Fashion, different performances and recognition of BIPOC Excellence in the Community of Kamloops and surrounding areas. The event aims to promote the heritage of African Descent and create a cross cultural platform where people of all cultures feel included, authentic and have inspiring conversations and moments.
Talk openly about both challenges and opportunities for the BIPOC community and what the best ways forward could be like.
Empowerment is important and we dive into it by promoting cultural awareness and creating platforms for authentic intercultural conversations ranging from racism and discrimination to inclusion and breaking barriers to achieving true inclusions.
We believe that in learning and sharing openly, it can help inform decision makers in establishing best practices as individuals, organizations and as a community.
